Customer fatally shoots robber after he held up Houston restaurant with fake gun trends now

A customer fatally shot a robber in the head after he held up a Texas restaurant with a fake gun - and police are now searching for the vigilante who helped get the stolen money back to the patrons.  

The robber, believed to be in his 20s, entered Ranchito #4 Taqueria in southwest Houston wearing a black ski mask and gloves before ambushing 10 customers and demanding their money at gunpoint.

Footage shows the shouting man wave what is believed to be a pistol around the restaurant, while customers drop to the ground and hand over their belongings.

But as the man headed towards the door, one of the patrons - described by police as either white or Hispanic - produced his own gun and shot the robber.

He fired nine times - one of which was in the head - causing him to collapse to the ground. The customer, wearing a grey t-shirt and jeans, then collected the stolen money and cellphones and started handing it back to the people they were taken from.

Police have not filed any charges and just want to speak to the customer in the clip.

He then fled the scene in a dusty pickup truck, along with the other customers in the taqueria on South Gessner Road.  

Investigators say that they want to track down to the pictured man for his role in the shooting - and that no charges have been filed yet. 

The identity of the robber has not yet been released - but police believe the gun he was waving around the restaurant may have been a plastic BB gun.
